yanni-“nightingale” is a duple meter. The tempo of the piece remains constant and moderato. The rhythm is played with piano, flute, and strings.
The flute solos the introduction of piece (0:02-0:056) with a bright tone, and in high pitch. Then, the piano is introduced(0:57), and starts playing the main melody. The strings are introduced at 1:06, playing together with the piano. Sometimes they play all together, sometimes they take turns to solo, sometimes they become each others’ accompaniments.
The texture of the piece is homophonic since there is only one main melody, the the rest are repetitions and accompaniments.
The form of the piece can be described as binary Form. Although there is an obvious change in way they perform from 3:40- 4:30, it is still playing the B section since it is still about the main melody. In the A section(0:02-0:56), the bright tone of the flute leads us to a wonderland. Then, at the beginning of section B, the Piano seems drags me back to reality and start hearing them telling the mystic story.
